Ever just feel blurry? Like you’ve been walking through a fog or something?
These last few days/weeks have been like that for me. They all run together. In fact, I have to stop and think hard about what day it is. And where I’m going. I have to write EVERYTHING down because ifÂ I don’t, I’ll forget.
Perhaps it’s been the late nights and all the work I’ve been doing. Not only at the Day Job but in the evenings as well. Last night, I brought the work computer home with me and worked for a bit before hitting my personal PC and working on edits again.
I gotta admit…I had reservations about having a company laptop, but now that I have the VPN and everything working, it really rocks. It’s like working right at my desk in the office, except with fewer interruptions. 🙂 I did get a lot done, which is good. But I have a loooong way to go yet. I’m just going to plow ahead and keep on keeping on.
In my writing world, I worked on BREAK edits for a while. I have the first five or so chapters rewritten and I’ve been asking myself a lot of questions about the storyline. It’s really rather weak (thank goodness I’m getting the chance to fix it!) and my heroine is rather annoying. I’ve been thinking her internal conflict is about her warring emotions for the hero. Because, after all, he IS a hit man. Which is giving me an idea for Thursday’s post over at SFC…I’ll save it for that. And I better go ahead and write it up because if I don’t, well, it’ll be gone too. HA
Ran by Office Depot last night and got some ink for my photo printer. $75 later… EGADS it’s expensive. But as I paid, I thought, “Tax write off!” Then it was back to home with the Sweetie Boy who fell asleep in the car.
He was so cute when I picked him up, he was ready and waiting for me. When I came to the door, he came running up. “Mom, I wrote you a letter!” He reached for this little envelope with sticks on the outside that said missing you and love you. I thought that was so cute.
So I opened it. And inside was a hand written little note from him that said I love you mom. Talk about a weepy moment. I love it! I will cherish it forever. He hugged me hard and said he was missing me. Even his grandma said he had been missing me and kept asking, “When is my mom coming?” all afternoon.
It’s the little things like that that make it all worthwhile. Makes you keep going and taking it one more day at a time.
I gotta say, too, I’ve been pretty happy these last few days. Things are looking up. Even though the Day Job has its moments, I’m pretty happy there. Due in large part to the fact I have a fantastic boss. It’s always nice when you thoroughly enjoy working for someone. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chiping, we’ve been getting some nice rains lately. It smells and feels like Spring (the baby told me Saturday he was so happy it was Spring because the flowers were blooming and the leaves were coming back on the trees – gosharootie I love that kid!). There are other good things happening – things I can’t really blog about yet but I will in time. 🙂
And uh… is it Wednesday? Someone tell me because I’m still blurry. haha
